Concept view of market space on site

COUNCILS AIMS Farmers' markets in Brighton & Hove Specific issues of concern are:

O P E N M A R K ET

Brighton and Hove council conducted a survey of the current Open Market Being the closest market to my site the data could prove useful for my design Using averages of data the market visitor: Spend between £5 and £10 Buys mainly fruit and veg Shops at the market 1.45 times a week Gets to the market on foot Lives within a mile radius F UT U R E P L A N S - Lomax Cassidy Edwards(Jubilee Library) £11 million revamp will make provision for 56 permanent market stalls, 58 art and craft workshops, a café and 26 flats - The square will be an open thoroughfare – 24 hours per day. - There will be room for regular events such as French markets, Farmers’ markets, - Craft Fairs and Educational activities such as cookery lessons. - The general concept is “North Laine with a roof on it”, so when it is raining people will still come.

- using more locally grown foods - improving the nutritional quality of schools and workplace food - improving access to affordable, healthy food for all - increasing food grown in gardens, allotments and community projects - development of local markets - more recycling and composting

MARKET BENEFITS Markets provide many environmental, social, economic and health benefits. - an opportunity for customers to talk to producers - bringing a spirit of fun and community back into shopping - a reduction of ‘food miles’ and packaging - a direct marketing outlet for smaller family farms unable to meet supermarket demands for specified size, shape and quantity - growers sell direct to the customer so the price paid, even for organic produce, can be lower than from supermarkets - encouraging organic and environmentally friendly farming

THE COMMUNITY PRODUCE PROJECT AND ESPECIALLY THE MARKET WILL BE THE INTEGRAL PARTS OF THE ‘SOCIAL CONDENSER’
